Calling All Austin Small Business Owners! You’re Invited to the #IMakeaLiving Event
August 28, 2017
Texas: In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, our thoughts and our hearts are with you during this devastating time.
We really considered whether to proceed with our next planned #IMakeaLiving event in Austin. But making a living, we realized, is a constant in life—in both good and challenging times. So, we’re delighted to announce that our Austin event will still be happening!
How people make a living today is very different from 10 years ago. And that’s the motivation behind the #IMakeaLiving events sponsored by FreshBooks. This month, we hosted our fourth #IMakeaLiving event in Portland, OR.
Austin is the fifth city on our eight city #IMakeaLiving tour. We’re excited to see how the conversation evolves in Texas; the similarities and differences between small business owners in different parts of the continent. No matter what, we know it will be another inspiring event!
Event: #IMakeaLiving powered by FreshBooks
When: Wednesday, September 13, 2017, 8:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Where: Stubb’s Bar-B-Q: 801 Red River St, Austin, TX 78701, USA
Details: #IMakeaLiving will host a diverse panel of people from different industries. They’ll share stories about their livelihoods and non-traditional career journeys. Our panelists will then show you how to harness that inspiration and apply it to your own career. Our goal is to motivate and empower you to break out of your comfort zone and take some chances with your career and marketing!
Cost: The #IMakeaLiving event is free to attend! After all, seeing you thrive is all the payment we need 🙂
